The Breadalbane Collection

The Breadalbane Collection, an eclectic gathering of 16th century documents of the Campbells of Glenorchy, provides unique insight into Scottish life during the early modern period. The collection was edited by Prof Jane Dawson.

The Campbells were the dominant group within West Highland Gaelic society in the sixteenth century and these letters reveal, in a way no other surviving source can, how that Gaelic world functioned.
